Publisher Description

A hilarious, action-packed look at the apocalypse that combines a touching tale of friendship, a thrilling war story, and an all out kung-fu infused mission to save the world.
 


Gonzo Lubitch and his best friend have been inseparable since birth. They grew up together, they studied kung-fu together, they rebelled in college together, and they fought in the Go Away War together. Now, with the world in shambles and dark, nightmarish clouds billowing over the wastelands, they have been tapped for an incredibly perilous mission. But they quickly realize that this assignment is more complex than it seems, and before it is over they will have encountered everything from mimes, ninjas, and pirates to one ultra-sinister mastermind, whose only goal is world domination.

I didn't know books could BE this good.

It's really quite dark and violent, yet there's a core of humanity and a surprising amount of humor.

Astounding!

A wonderful, surprising and loving portrait of the human condition. It's also a fun and smart adventure story. Quite an accomplishment.

Read because of William Gibson's recommendation, & blessings on them both. My absolute favorite read of the year, reminds me of early Neal Stephenson. This book has everything -good writing, solid loveable characters, philosophy, wit, and of course, ninjas. As soon as I finished it I went back to re-read my favorite parts, & I haven't done that in a while. Can't wait for more from this author.
